Wow, thanks.  Let me know if you need to test patches to a any of these 
wm_* pkgs.  Give me a sec to get up to speed and I can test any patch you 
want to make.  I really like all of these doodads and have some other 
issues to report that might not have clear bugs, but many of the progs 
need work.  THANKS AGAIN!
